If, as was rumored earlier in the week, Nintendo really is losing some of its top marketing staff, they're not saying so at the moment. As you may already know, Game Informer Online reported on Wednesday that the relocation of Big N's marketing to NYC was forcing the departure of top marketing and PR people like Beth Llewelyn, Perrin Kaplan and George Harrison. But that's not the case (at least, not at the moment), according to a Nintendo statement reported by Pro-G.

"In terms of the execs you name leaving we have not heard anything regarding that speculation (and it remains speculation) and we aren't commenting further on those rumours at this time," the statement says. Of course, that doesn't mean that it won't still happen ... only that nobody's willing to talk. We'll keep you updated.
